The Senators are in the early part of an 8-game road trip that could decide if they are a contender in the Eastern Conference or not. Considering their lack of success on the road this season it is not surprising to see Calgary favored in hockey betting odds.
Hockey odds history shows that Ottawa is 5-4-1 in the last 10 meetings against Calgary. Since these two teams are in opposite conferences they don’t meet as often as you might think. Hockey odds scheduling information tells us that the Senators and Flames did not play at all last season. You have to go back to 2006 for their only meeting that season in Ottawa as the Flames won 1-0 as hockey odds results show. They met only once in 2005 and that was in Calgary as the Flames won 2-1 according to hockey odds results. They split their two meetings in 2004 with each team winning at home as hockey odds stats indicate.
Ottawa’s problem this season has been scoring goals. They rank near the bottom of the league as hockey odds stats show. Their defense has been pretty good though, ranking near the Top 5 as hockey betting odds stats indicate. Hockey odds stats show that Dany Heatley has led the team in scoring for most of the season. Hockey betting odds tell us that Alex Auld has led the team in wins and goals against average this season.
Calgary has been almost the opposite of Ottawa in terms of hockey odds stats. The Flames have an offense that is near the Top 10 as hockey odds statistics show but their defense has been weak. Calgary has had a defense that ranks in the bottom third of the league as hockey odds number show. Hockey betting odds experts think that is somewhat surprising considering Mike Keenan is the head coach and Miikka Kiprusoff is a top goaltender.
